Obviously, If you hinge the cover, not only will you lose the space that
is underneath the hinge, but also around an inch towards the inside
margin.  Think about it like this: if you take two documents, velo-bind
one and comb-bind the other, the comb-bound document will lay flat when
open.  The Velo-bound document will not lay flat, and you will have
trouble seeing what is printed close to the binding.  The same is true
for a hand-bound book that has been sewn -vs- a Japanese-type binding

A book I bought that I think is pretty comprehensive is _Books, Boxes
and Portfolios_.  Also, a hunting expedition at my university's library
yielded quite a few useful books on the subject.

Good luck.
